In a statement released on Monday 17th August 2020 the DVSA said that in a change to the way tests are usually conducted – they are now going to require to see Theory test certificates before the test can begin.
Therefore if no theory test certificate is present then the driving test in Shrewsbury will not go ahead
From the DVSA
If you or your pupil have entered the UK in the last 14 days, you must not go to a driving test unless you:
- arrived from a country on the ‘travel corridor’ list
- belong to one of the groups who do not have to self-isolate
The government keeps the conditions in countries on the travel corridor list under review, and it is regularly updated.
France, the Netherlands, Monaco, Malta, Turks and Caicos Islands and Aruba have now been removed from the list.
Check the list regularly for the latest information.
Valid theory test certificates checks
As part of our normal ID and eligibility checks our driving examiners are checking for valid theory test certificates.
If your pupil does not have a valid certificate the test will not go ahead.
If your pupil has lost or damaged their certificate they can apply for a replacement letter by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. They’ll need to provide their:
- date of birth
- driving licence number
